Deep in tournament, around 35 players remaining.
Only had 15 hands on the villain, 27/20 with 16,7 3bet, 1.0 AF.
Few orbits ago i raised button and he just shoved for 20ish bigs, no other dynamics. What to do? If they are paying attention, my image is standard imo, just opening late positions nothing special.

Hi CYJ,

I think with a strong overpair to the board and a low SPR due to the 19bb effective stack, that we should just get it in here.

Your read is very limited, you only have 15 hands but he 3b shoved your button open with 20bb once already... I assume you folded since he's still in the tourney with a similar stack size.
Obviously he can have sets here and maybe even 97s but there are a number of worse hands he may be committing with, including both draws and 1 pair hands. Since I doubt he is check-raising as a pure bluff or check-raise/folding a draw or made hand, I prefer to simply put him in directly now so I don't run the risk of losing action or getting confused on ugly turn cards.

Yep, i agree i should get it in. He indeed had a set - 444, but i think i made the best decision anyway.
